    I just love old 8bit/16bit games, unfortunately don't have time to play games as much as I would like to.
    What I also like is to listen to retro games music while I'm at work:)

    So thought we could share our favorite soundtracks from our old games here.

    I'll start!

    I really like to listen to Fire & Ice (Amiga) soundtrack.




    Other one is New Zealand Story on C64:)

    I used to love the Ocean loading screen music on my C64.

    Haha, those Ocean loaders were memorable weren't they?

    Here's another I remember vividly, one of the few Ocean titles to have its own loader, Rambo:

    I didn't have that game but another Ocean title I had used the same loader. It's amazing how these tunes stay with you isn't it? I recognised it immediately!

    you guys are not doing it properly...

    didn't I switch off gods 25 years ago and forget to get back to it..... listening to these tracks is wounder and brings me right back to the freshness of computers.

    other games, double dragon, jet set willy, last ninja 2

    oh heck here it is.

    Gods, Last Ninja, Fury of the Furies, P.P.Hammer, Powermonger - those were the days. Guys, seriously only after 2 seconds of those music tunes and I'm right back in early 90's... Those 8-bit were immortal... those floppy discs, DOS, squeezing last bit of the RAM, messing up in highmem.sys and config.sys files... those monitor filters.. keyboard covers...

    The original Sonic on Mega Drive holds a lot of nostalgia for me but I think the EU/JAP version of Sonic CD on the MegaCD might top it.

    Bubble Bobble is in your brain!

    Daniel Perret from that hitman rendition of Ave Maria stops me in my tracks.

    Another of that, double scoop of delight.
